                                    summary

      Martin Turbo Engineering, Inc., of 1310 Johnson Drive, City of Industry,

CA 91745, has requested an update to the existing Air Resources Board‘s

Executive Order No. D—114.   The applicant requested that their add—on
turbocharger kit No. 301 E10 be also exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle

Code Section 27156 for the 1982 and 1983 model—year gasoline engine powered

passenger cars having a Chevrolet 350 cubic inch displacement (CID) and 1983

and olderpassenger cars with a 305CID eight—cylinder carbureted engine and
automatic transmission.

      Based on test data from previous comparative exhaust emission tests

performed on a 1981 Corvette and the fact that the Chevrolet 350 CID

closed—1oop carbureted engines used in the 1982 and 1983 modelT—year passenger
cars up to 6000 Tbs. GVWR are carryovers (identical engine designs) from the

1981 modeT—year and that the 305 CID engines are in the same engine family

{dual engine displacement family), the staff concludes that the applicant‘s

turbocharger kit will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from passenger
cars up to 6000 Tbs. GVWR having a Chevrolet 305 or 350 CID eight—cylinder

carbureted engine and automatic transmission.   However, the 1983 medium—duty

vehicles (6000 to 8500 Tbs. GVWR) with this engine size are not carryovers

and, therefore, are not included in the update exemption.

      The staff recommends that Martin Turbo Engineering, Inc. be granted

their update request for passenger cars up to 6000 Tbs. GVWR and that

Executive Order No. D—114—1 be adopted.

 EVALUATION OF THE MARTIN TURBO ENGINEERING, INC.‘S TURBOCHARGER KIT NO. 301
 E1O FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE PROHIBITIONS IN VEHICLE CODE SECTION 27156 IN
 ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 2222, TITLE 13 OF THE CALIFORNIA ADMINISTRATIVE CODE.


 I.    INTRODUCTION

       Martin Turbo Engineering, Inc., of 1310 Johnson Drive, City of Industry,

 CA 91745, has requested an update to the existing Air Resources Board‘s

 Executive Order (E.0.) No. D—114.    The applicant requested that their add—on
 turbocharger kit No. 301 E10 be also exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle

 Code (VC) Section 27156 for the 1982 and 1983 model—year gasoline engine

— powered motor vehicles having—a— Chevrolet—350— C1D—and—1983—and older motor —— —

 vehicles with a Chevrolet 305 CID eight—cylinder engine (carbureted only) and
 autométic transmission.

 II.   CONCLUSION
       Based on test data from previous comparative exhaust emission tests

 performed on a 1981 Corvette and the fact that the closed—loop carbureted
 Chevrolet 350 CID    engines used in the 1982 and 1983 model—year passenger cars

 up to 6000 Tbs. GVWR are carryovers (identical engine designs) from the 1981

 model—year the 305 CID engines are in the same engine family (dual engine

 displacement family), the staff concludes that the turbocharger kit will not

 adversely affect exhaust emissions from 1983 and older model—year gasoline

 engine powered passenger cars having a Chevrolet 305 or 350 CID eight—cylinder

 engine {carbureted only) and automatic transmission.    However, the 1983

 medium—duty (MD) vehicles (6000 to 8500 lbs. GVWR) with this engine size are

 not carryovers and, therefore, cannot be included in the update exemption.


III.    RECOMMENDATIONS

       The staff recommends that Martin Turbo Engineering, Inc. be granted

their update request for gasoline engine powered passenger cars up to 6000

Ibs. GYWR having a Chevrolet 305 or 350 CID eight—cylinder engine (carbureted

only) and automatic transmission in the exemption of their add—on turbocharger

kit No. 301 E10.     The staff recommends that Executive Order No. D—114—1 be

adopted.

IV.    TURBOCHARGER KIT DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION

  __ _ The purpose ofturbocharging is to increase the volumetric efficiency of
an engine by forcing more air into an engine than it would take in under

naturally aspirated conditions.
       The major components of the turbocharger kit are a RaJay turbocharger

mode] No. 301 E10 with an A/R ratio of 1.0, a replacement Martin inlet

manifold lid and exhaust manifold {right cylinder bank}, a crossover pipe,

replacement secondary metering rods, and a water injection unit.     The

components are packaged with installation hardware and instructions and sold

as a kit.

       The crossover pipe routes exhaust from the left cylinder bank to join

the right cylinder bank exhaust at the Martin exhaust manifold.     The turbine

inlet of the turbocharger mounts directly to the exhaust manifold.     The

turbine and the compressor are linked together by a solid shaft and driven by

exhaust gases.     Intake air/fuel mixture is compressed by the compressor and

returned to the intake manifold lid.

       Maximum positive manifold pressure (boost) is Timited to 5 psig by a

pressure control valve positioned in the intake manifold lid.     No wastegate or

other active Timiting device is used.


                                        2.


           Lubrication of the turbocharger is provided by a Tine from the oil

    pressure sending unit mounted on the engine block to the turbocharger bearing

    housing.   Oi1 from the turbocharger is returned to the oi1 drain adapter

    positioned between the fuel pump and engine block.

           The original equipment manufacturer (OEM) secondary metering rods (ID

    CH) in the carburetor are replaced by Martin‘s No. 937050 metering rods (ID

    CJ).   The metering rods are raised by 0.005 of an inch from the OEM position.

    The applicant claims that the replacement metering rods increases secondary
    fuel delivery for proper and efficient operation of the kit.
           Water injection is employed to control NOx emissions and to suppress

    detonation.   Water is drawn from a small plastic reservoir by a pump and
    injected into the top of the carburetor through a nozzle.     Flow is restricted
    by a 0.015 inch orifice ahead of the nozzle.   The pump is activated when

    manifold vacuum is below 6 inches Hg.

           No modifications to the OEM tune—up specifications are required nor

    permitted when the turbocharger kit is installed.    All OEM emissions controls
    are left intact.

    V.     DISCUSSION

           Martin Turbo Engineering, Inc‘s. turbocharger kit No. 301 E10,

    applicable to 1981 and older modeT—year—gasoline engine powered motor vehicles

    having a Chevrolet 350 CID eight—cylinder engine and automatic transmission,

    was granted an exemption (E.0. No. D—114) on July 29, 1981.    The exemption was

    granted on the basis that the effectiveness of the vehicle‘s pollution control

    system was not reduced.   Evaluation consisted of comparative (without and with

    the kit installed on a test vehicle) chassis dynamometer CVS—75 and HFE tests

‘   at normal certification dynamometer road loading.


                                            3.


      The applicant is making available kit No. 301 E10 for the 1982 and 1983

models with a Chevrolet 305 CID engine and 1983 and older model—year vehicles

with a Chevrolet 305 CID engine models also.     The applicant requested that the

exemption be updated to include these vehicles.
      In response to the request, the staff compared the engine design of

1981, 1982, and 1983 model—years for both Chevrolet 305 and 350 CID models.
Since the closed—loop carbureted Chevrolet 350 CID engines used in the 1982

and 1983 model—year passenger cars up to 6000 Tbs. GVWR are carryovers and the

fact that the passenger cars with a Chevrolet 305 CID engines are in the same

engine family (dual engine displacement family), the staff is of the opinion
that the 1982 and 1983 passenger cars will have the same degree of

performance/emissions impact as in the 1981 passenger cars up to 6000 lbs.
GVWR models.     Because of the data on a 1981 test vehicle showed that the

vehicle‘s emissions were not adversely affected when the turbocharger kit was

installed, the kit will have no adverse effect on the passenger cars up to

6000 Tbs. GVWR models with a Chevrolet 305 or 350 CID engine either.     No

additional testing was required or performed for updating the passenger car

exemption.     However, the 1983 MD vehicles (6001 to 8500 Tbs. GVWR} with this
engine size are not carryovers and additional testing will be required for

updating the MD exemption.
